About the property

1 bed, 2 bath on the beach, whale watch from our lanai, air conditioned comfort

Vacations are about choice, and if you choose quiet comfort, a beautiful ocean front setting with an expansive soft sand beach meeting gentle warm waters look no farther. You come to Hawaii to enjoy the beaches, stay on an excellent one, Sugar Beach. Separated from the crowded city-front beaches our beach offers many miles of soft sand for children to play on, walkers to walk or jog on and strollers to stroll on. Our property enjoys beach front Barbecues with tables and chairs for day and evening enjoyment; nature provides glorious sunset dinners as everyone looks for the 'green flash.' Warm days invite you to choose between reading or napping under the palm trees and umbrellas, taking a dip in the warm ocean or heated pool or walking over to the farmer's market to select fresh island foods. The shave-ice store is also a favorite, this is not your father's snow cone.

Low Season Rate $135/night: April 16 - December 14 + Hawaii tax

High Season Rate $180/night: December 15 - April 15 + Hawaii tax

Add ocean and mountain views to your morning coffee, spot whales in season, enjoy a quiet sun-set; all from your private Lanai. If all this sounds enjoyable you will be pleased to discover more. Beach towels, chairs and coolers provided, 32'' full HDTV reception in the bedroom, secure key-less entry with your pre-selected private entry code (all guest codes are removed when guests leave), laundry facilities just steps away, manicured grounds, free parking, free cleaning, free wireless internet and a central island location for activities such as golfing, fine dining, scuba and snorkeling, visits to Lahaina, Kaanapali, Iao Valley, Wailea, Paia, Hana, Haleakaia and more. That photo of the Spotted Eagle Rays was taken on one of my local dives, if you are a diver contact me about dive locations, dive trips and dive shops.

We are most comfortable for two in King bed comfort; honeymooners, retired couples and all those seeking quiet.

About Donald

My wife, Linda, and I have traveled the world, and continue to do so, the photo was taken near the entrance to Monet Gardens in France, just outside of Paris. We discovered our Maui Sugar Beach location on one of our travels and fell in love with the unique property, purchasing our unit sight unseen by internet & mail once we returned home. We continue to upgrade our island home and our efforts have resulted in a 'Deluxe' rating and one of the highest booking calendars of the Nani Kai Hale! We know Maui!

Donald purchased this condo in 1999

Why Donald chose Kihei

After attending several 'wine & cheese' time share presentations for properties that were 'near the beach' we discovered our 'right on the beach' property with permanent owners and fell in love with the warm sharing and gatherings that occur daily around the beachfront barbeque area. With six miles of soft sand beach to stroll along with lawn & fresh water pool there is much to enjoy! The 'Nani' experience is truely unique.

What makes this condo unique

With only 46 units our property enjoys a special 'bonding' of guests & owners alike, some guests have been returning for 20 to 30 years because they feel 'at home' when they gather around the lawn and barbeque area for the many spontaneous sharings of food and stories daily. The protected cove provides a safe water and beach environment that is a magnet for children of all ages, our central Maui location is the perfect jumping off spot!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sadly our vacation is over. Would like to stay longer, but must get back to work so we can come again. Had a great time. Thanks for the lovely place to stay. The coolers were great when we went to Hana. We couldn't have ask for anything else. We will be back."

Quiet relaxation in abundance starts in our air-conditioned accommodations and extends to our relaxing lawn and gentle beach. There is a 'Farmer's Market' within walking distance, but you are away from the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown. Take a long walk on quiet Sugar Beach, swim in the heated pool, or take a nap in a chaise lounge on the lawn. Gas grills, tables and chairs ocean front, palm trees and umbrellas shade you from the sun. The gentle beach leads you into warm (normally 80F) water on most days.

Well equipped, convenient home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Location: Kihei, right in the "crotch" of Maui, is low-key and accessible to everything: beaches, restaurants, the road to Haleakala, shopping. Apartment: best-equipped VRBO ever. Lots of dishes, towels, cooking utensils - but also plastic wrap, notepad and pens, drying rack, coolers in two sizes, and condiments in the fridge. It encourages sharing. (So, if you use the Tide HE laundry detergent, you're welcome! And thanks, in turn, for the tin foil.) The first night we found the traffic noise loud but once you're used to it, you hear the ocean more. The beach out front is perfect for swimming and running and just hanging out. We liked the feel of the Nani Ki Hale building overall - this is NOT the place where you have to run out first thing in the morning and reserve a beach chair. Bed is comfortable, parking is easy, quiet hours are quiet, and there's a landline in the apartment. Donald is an attentive host. Mahalo for an excellent stay.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed our Maui home for your vacation, and found our offering worthy of your vacation dollars. Yes, we have a central location, offer a "like home" setting right down to the furnishings (Lazy-Boy recliners) and condiments, plus plenty of storage for all of that out of your suitcase. Those sensitive to outdoor sounds at anytime can utilize the air-conditioning found throughout and closing either the dual-pane slider or the bedroom window. We really look forward to your return, and hope you do as well. Mahalo for your comments.

Perfection Close to everything . Well appointed and full of local art.

  • 4 of 5

Donald and Linda’s condo is ideal . You are centrally located to all points. The road noise might bother some but it is much quieter than the one we live by. Comfortable and well stocked with basic needs.

Mahalo we hope to be back some day

Owner's Response: Aloha Heather and Don and mahalo for your review, many guests prefer to close the bedroom window during the traffic hours and open it at night for the sound of the ocean. Closing the bedroom window and using the a/c and/or ceiling fan keeps you comfortable and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the nice note you left for us in the guest book. We too look forward to your return and are pleased that you find us, "return worthy." Safe travels and see you again soon. Donald and Linda

A Shangrila Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this wonderful property. First stay was one week, came back for two weeks this year! Great location, great beach, and on top of that an immaculate, very nicely appointed unit. The owners have made sure that guests will be very comfortable and well informed about all the amenities available to them plus a wonderful written guide on suggested local restaurants and activities with personal notations (much appreciated).

We love the location and unit so much that we are already discussing plans to come back next year.

Perfect Location! Fully Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Nani Kai Hale! It was in the perfect location in the middle of Maui. Kihei is a wonderful little town with lots of amazing restaraunts, shops and beaches. This condo is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Donald is an excellent host and called us multiple times to make sure everything was going well. Sugar beach isnt't the best for swimming or snorkeling but it was amazing to walk down the beach in the morning with coffee or sit out and watch the sunset. There are tons of amazing beaches close by for snorkeling. Another amzing thing about this condo... Uluani's Shave Ice!! Just a short walk down the beach to our new favorite treat! You have to try it and add the Snow-Cap!! Super yummy :) We also loved how quiet and low-key the area around the condo was. The beach was never crowded and we never had to search for parking. Perfect vacation! We hope to visit again sometime in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so happy, and rewarded, when our guests discover what a great location we have; the quiet setting, the quiet beach, our proximity to entertainment, restaurants, and outstanding water activities. We treat every guest as a new friend visiting our Maui home, and we make every effort to insure their comfort by checking in with them during their stay with us by phone. Every guest deserves a comfortable, clean and private property to enjoy their vacation in, we strive to provide that and thank you for sharing your thoughts. Yes, please do come and enjoy Maui again, and please do it in our Maui home. Mahalo

We have experienced one of our most delightful vacations we've ever had. Our gratitude goes to the hosts for all of their attentiveness. They were so informative and available. The condo is appointed so nicely. Everything is very clean and organized. The king size bed is so comfortable you'll sleep like a baby. The location for access to other areas of Maui is wonderful. We loved our private piece of paradise when we sat in our lawn chairs at the condo with the relaxing sound of ocean waves. Sugar beach is pristine and the water is warm. We really loved our vacation. Thanks Donald and Linda

Owner's Response: Mahalo Joan and Tom for your comments, we are always pleased when our guests discover everything is as advertised! Yes, that palm tree and umbrella shaded lawn is great for viewing the warm ocean virtually at your feet, reading a book, taking a nap or developing a sunburn to impress your friends back home. Our central air conditioning system will cool that burn down, our fully equipped kithcen will provide all the tools you need to fuel for the next day. Keep coming back ; - )

Owner's Response: Aloha Anna, My wife and I are most pleased that you found so many good points regarding our Maui Home for those looking for an exceptional Hawaii vacation without spending a lot of money to stay in a crowded hotel with little more than a bed and a mini-cooler. We want you and every guest to feel that you have discovered your "Home away from Home" in Maui with many if not all the amenities you have at home. We offer a great beach, a super comfortable fully furnished unit and a central location to explore the island, and information to help you do so.
